Welcome!

I reunite identified family photos that I find in antique shops and second hand stores with genealogists and family historians. If you see one of your ancestors here and would like to obtain the original, feel free to contact me. Donations of pre-1920 photographs are also most welcome. I hope you enjoy your visit!

A Wednesday Wedding: Charlotte Alexander and William Ferguson, 1927



This is the wedding invitation of Charlotte Ida Mae Alexander and William Ferguson, married on Wednesday, July 20th, 1927 at the Fourth Avenue Baptist Church in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

According to their Ontario marriage record, Charlotte, 21, was the daughter of Henry and Margaret (nee Gooding) Alexander, born 1906 in Ramsayville, Ontario.   A search of Ontario, Canada Births, 1869-1913 shows she was born April 21, 1906.  The groom's parents were John Ferguson and Jenny Moore.  William, 35, was born in Ireland.  The witnesses were John A. Ferguson of 143 Blackburn Ave in Ottawa & Ruth Ackroyd of 420 Bank Street, Ottawa.

"Reception afterwards at the home, Experimental Farm."  I was curious about the "experimental farm," and found that is it an historic site in Ottawa.
